Movie Info

Academia meets street smarts when Monty Kessler (Brendan Fraser), a graduate student struggling to finish his program, loses his thesis and finds it in the hands of a homeless man named Simon Wilder (Joe Pesci). Though the two get off on the wrong foot, they become unlikely friends, with Simon teaching Monty some important life lessons. Although Monty's roommates, including his buddy, Everett Calloway (Patrick Dempsey), initially dislike having Simon around, they grow to appreciate him, too.

Audience Reviews for With Honors

    A simplistic movie - a homeless bum teaches Harvard students what is important in life, but everything is too easy in this movie.

    A homeless man Joe Pesci living under a library at Harvard blackmails Harvard student Brendan Fraser into giving him anything he wants after Pesci obtains pages from one of Fraser's senior thesis. Fraser, terrified, does all that Pesci asks for and lets Pesci move in with him and his three college friends (Moira Kelly, Patrick Dempsey and Josh Hamilton). A film with good intentions that entertains and tries to show that the things that are most important are not always the first priorities in our lives! Of course the biggest question is at a school as prestigious and select as Harvard how can Pesci who is just a misunderstood, hidden genius live under the library with no one finding out?

    A great drama, I saw this for a class, which usually makes you dislike a movie, but this one was fantastic. The story is based on a real story, and the actors are good, and it's just so cool. If you like dramas, you have to see it.
